Mike Hoag@MikeHoagJrCorrespondent IINovember 25, 2012

Notre Dame Fighting Irish quarterback Everett Golson suffered from cramping in his leg before halftime, Brian Kelly said, according to Jason McIntyre of The Big Lead.

From 52!! Wow! What a drive by Golson to get them 3 points. Well, as long as the hamstring isn't a bad injury (Kelly said cramps)

UPDATE: Saturday, November 24 at 10:15 p.m. ET by Mike Hoag

Golson returned to action on the Irish's first second-half drive. He didn't display any symptoms or signs for concern and should be able to finish this game behind center for Notre Dame.

---End of Update---


He was seen limping off toward the tunnel after the Irish’s half-ending, 52-yard field goal that gave the team a 16-10 halftime lead.

He’ll likely be getting fluids during the half and should be able to come out in the second half to finish what he started.

If Golson’s cramps don’t clear up in the second half, he’ll be replaced by junior quarterback Tommy Rees. Rees, the team’s former starter, has completed 57.6 percent of his passes for 436 yards in spot duty this season.
